Allston, MA, US



I am a recent graduate from the Knowlton School of Architecture beginning my design career in the city of Boston, Massachusetts.  I grew up in Yokosuka U.S. Naval Base, Japan and have been travelling further away from home ever since.

I am in search of an Architectural Intern position in order to serve as a valuable asset to your architecture firm and to continue expanding my design abilities one experience at a time.  I am especially interested in architecture that seeks to absorb both old and new elements throughout history into its scheme.  I believe that architecture is a practice dependent on communicating some sort of message, and it is the privilege of the designer to make such messages apparent.  

Pleased to meet you!
